Award-winning chef Andy Waters to open new Birmingham restaurant

17th July 2013

Top Midlands chef Andy Waters is to open his new restaurant ‘Waters on the Square’ with Black Country entrepreneurs Jim and Adam Driscoll this Autumn.

Located in Chad Square on the border of Edgbaston, Waters on the Square will open in the building formerly known as Italian restaurant Pinnochio’s. The new 35 cover restaurant will serve modern British cuisine in a relaxed and friendly setting; a style that over the years has earnt Andy a loyal following.

The new venture will be a return to Birmingham for the previously Michelin starred chef, who left his award-winning restaurant Edmunds last year to go into partnership with the Driscolls at Belbroughton pub The Queens. Coming to Chad Square is extra special for Andy who in 2001 was Head Chef at The Bay Tree restaurant located there.

Gareth Ward, age 32, who has worked for Andy for twelve and half years, will be Head Chef of the new restaurant assisted by Will Tranter.

Commenting Andy said “I always said I would return to Birmingham, it is the place to be as it has such a diverse culinary scene.

“The new restaurant will have a bistro feel and will be relaxed and welcoming. Customers can expect homely comfort food, friendly service and great prices.”

Andy, who will be Chef Patron of Waters on the Square, will continue to run The Queens at Belbroughton.
